USA, 1954 (MIFF 1959, Programme 27)
Director: D. Sanders
Drawn from a story by Robert Chambers &ndash: a pointed and deeply moving comment on the essential futility of war &ndash: this is a film of exceptional integrity and rare poetic grace. The American Civil War: three professional soldiers &ndash: two from the North. one from the South &ndash: agree on a short truce and engage in desultory conversation.
